Anything With The Name Indian In It

In 1977 I taught at Mukwonago, Wisconsin High School. Their nickname was the Indians. It still is, but not for long. There are over 1800 students in this school and the name Indians has been around since the school was established in the 1920's. Indian tribes like this name. It maintains their identity. One person affiliated with Mukwonago complained to the school board and that august body buckled. To make a point I told one of my best friends who used to be their football coach that the new name should be The Turds. Who would be offended unless there's a country called Turdistan? Maybe the natives of Turdistan would enjoy being called Turds. The name Turds would be more acceptable in our society than Indians and that doesn't seem right.
I broke a pledge to never use Wikipedia but I wanted to look up the number of professional, college and high school teams with a mascot denoting some type of Indian or tribe, e.g. Braves, Seminoles, Chiefs, etc. You won't be surprised to learn that the name, Indian, is by far the most popular name of it's type and is primarily in our high schools. When I was in high school one of our conference members, Oskaloosa, had the nickname of Indians. These guys were flat out geeks and awful athletes. If I was an Indian I would have wanted my name dropped because these guys couldn't play marbles without breaking their fingers.
Remember Rodney King and his famous quote: "Can't we all just get along"? With liberals populating this country and the ever ending news cycles over names it ain't gonna anytime soon, especially when it comes to Indian nicknames.
It made me very happy to  read today that Dan Snyder, president of the Washington Redskins, told the Oneida Chiefs to take a hike when they demanded the Skins' change their name.
If the Indian tribes were smart they'd forget about nicknames and continue sticking it to the people at the gambling casinos. At these places they get their revenge every day and night.

Sharia Law A Part Of This Administration

If you happen to be a low information voter you've never heard of this bad guy. If you're a Dem you might have heard of him and don't give a damn what he says or thinks because, in reality, you're a socialist or worse.
Mohamed Elibiary is one of a couple of Islamic Sharia promoters employed by our Department of Homeland Security. And you still don't think Obama is a Muslim.

The Pottery Barn Must Be Racists

It never entered my mind that the Pottery Barn would be selling Halloween costumes.  I don't shop there so what do I know? Anyway, a couple of people stopped in and saw these Japanese outfits, raised a big stink about the lack of appreciation for diversity and forced the Pottery Barn to pull the outfits from their shelves. It's a good thing I'm not the company CEO. I'd have to tell the complainers to "Get bent".

Even Catholic Schools Are Screwed Up

A Calgary school’s decision to stop rewarding students for their academic achievements has reignited a long-standing and divisive debate over whether these award programs should remain in the classroom.

This month, St. Basil Elementary and Junior High School took the view that awards and ceremonies lose their lustre to winners and hurt the self-esteem of students who don’t get them

A Golden Oldie

I am so far ahead of the curve it sometimes frightens me. Two days ago I read a column in The American Thinker comparing Barack Obama with the character, Chauncey Gardiner, played by Peter Sellers in the movie, "Being There".
This column jogged my memory so I went back in the files and pulled up this blog from June of 2010.

Had enough? All you who jumped onto and stayed on the bandwagon aren't you about ready to throw yourselves under the bus? When will you stop making excuses? Only the most hardened of you can hang on and some are making gurgling sounds, or is it a death rattle? The thrill has left the leg of Chris Matthews. Maureen Dowd is making fun of his ears and Bill Maher has him on his crap list.
The Joe Sestak Scandal is so amateurish I could pull it off. One would think the Obama crew would've checked out the fact that Sestak wasn't even eligible for a supposed volunteer position before having Slick Willie jump into the fray with his fabrication.
Did you know there was an oil leak in the Gulf? Not a problem, though. The gang that can't shoot straight has set up commissions to study the situation. Commissions are code for, "we're clueless".
There is a very serious situation in Arizona. During the Nixon administration I warned my high school students that someday we were going to have real problems with illegal immigration. It's all come to a head. Our President makes jokes about it while the folks in Arizona want something done for protection from drug dealers, kidnappers and murderers. Our leader allows this country to be trashed by the President of Mexico before a joint session of Congress while the rule of law in the southwest is being ignored. Shameful, Indeed!
If it weren't so serious it'd be comical but this Obama clown is flat out incompetent. A guy with a zero resume' who has accomplished nothing in life. A fella who has surrounded himself with avowed communists and socialists in his administration. A President with zero business experience who has placed in his administration radicals with no business experience. He has surrounded himself with community activists. You are familiar with activists? They're social workers-----period!
Any American would be hard pressed to come up with anything positive Barack H. Obama has said about this nation. There has not been an utterance of anything patriotic. I've heard not one statement of pride in being a citizen(if he is) of the United States of America.
Eighteen months ago I compared Obama with the character of "Chance the Gardener" from the movie, Being There. "Chance the Gardener" was exactly that; a very simple man living a very simple life tending his flowers. The owner of his estate died and Chance is put on the street. Through a series of circumstances Chance is struck by the car of a rich couple from Washington D.C. They take him in to their home. He has impressed them with his, well, "pensiveness". The couple thinks his name is Chauncy Gardner and he is now surrounded by the movers and shakers of the world's power center. Chance had an IQ of 'functional' and couldn't carry on a coherent conversation.The D.C. elite become convinced he is one of them. In groups of people he says nothing of consequence and this gives the 'snooties' the impression that he is nothing short of brilliant; an intellectual listener and thinker. Long story short; Chauncy becomes President of our country. If you haven't seen this Peter Seller's classic you should. If you don't or can't watch the movie not to worry; we're living it today.

Obama in Boston, Lying Again.

As he speaks, I am watching the Phony-in-Chief give a speech on healthcare. Well, I'm watching and trying not to listen because his speech pattern drives me crazy. He's trying to be funny but doesn't cut it. Once again he's the folksy guy by dropping the g from ing words. "C'mon, Barry, you went to Harvard and Columbia. Act like you're a professional". He's telling the audience that young people can buy insurance for $50 or less, older people can get a policy for $100 or less and everyone's applauding as if he isn't lying. Whenever he does speak I don't look at him but focus on the stooges behind him. They're smiling and nodding in agreement. He's citing states who have already signed up massive numbers: Kentucky, Oregon, Arkansas. I have a question. How is it he can cite these big sign up numbers when none have been released?
Back to our friends, the nodders and smilers: I have a question for them, too. "How can you be so F'ing stupid".
He did it. He blamed the insurance companies for dropping people from their plans and the dimwits are sucking it up. Lemings to the cliff; that's what they are except for the protestors(hippies against the Keystone pipeline) who shouted out to him and were quickly escorted from the orchestrated speech. Here we are, four years after the passage of this law and this guy is still out there trying to sell it to the people.
In conclusion. Mr. President told the people the same thing about healthcare he's been saying all along, a bunch of lies.

Guess Why This Band Was Fired From A College Gig

A popular jazz band named Shokaboza that "blends jazz and old school funk, with a West African beat" has just been told by Hampshire College in Massachusetts that it is "too white" to be allowed to perform a scheduled Halloween party gig on campus. Gawker reports:
In a statement released by Shokazoba shortly after the abrupt cancellation, the band blamed "30 students" who complained "that we were too white to play Afro-beat."

Are You Ready For The Punchline

Georgia Rep. John Lewis on Tuesday compared Republican opposition to President Obama’s health-care law to racism.
The Democratic lawmaker made the comments… during a House Ways and Means Committee hearing with Marilyn Tavenner, the administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
Referencing the numerous Republican attempts to repeal Obamacare over the last several years, Lewis said: “Just reminds me of another period in our history. Not so long ago during the 50s, many Southern senators signed a Southern Manifesto after the Supreme Court decision of 1954.”
Are you ready for the punchline? Have you guessed it already?
Ironically, while Lewis used the Southern Manifesto — which was in opposition to integration — to attack Republicans, 97 of the 99 politicians who signed it in 1956 were Democrats.

Things Barry Doesn't And Does Know

Barack Obama says:
He knew nothing about the guns going into Mexico (Fast and Furious)
He knew nothing about the NSA spying issue
He knew nothing about the security problems in Libya
He knew nothing about the IRS targeting political groups
He knew nothing about the problems with
 He knew nothing about Angela Murkels phone being tapped.
He knew what the status of Miami Heat was in a speech.
He knew that Jay Z had released a new album and it was slated to be a hit.
He knew the Harvard Police acted “stupidly” when he did not have all the facts.
He knew which member of the View was on “Dancing with the Stars”.
He knew which brackets he was picking for the NCAA basketball tourney.
He knew about Kanye West’s commments about Taylor Swift.
 He knew that Native Americans are “upset” about the Redskins.

Doesn’t seem like he knows much about running the country does it?

One Obama Accomplishment

There are a number of news sites I visit daily. At the bottom of each one is a space for comments. It's like Facebook except those who offer opinions are anonymous. I was on Gateway Pundit two days ago and left a comment about ObamaCare. Whenever one of these anonymous people counter comments it comes through on my Hotmail site. I received a counter comment from a fella with the handle BroBobCleve. It doesn't take an Einstein to figure out this guy was Black and from Cleveland. I commented back and he followed up with some liberal banter. When liberals get frustrated they name call because then can't come up with a legitimate response. After about twelve of these exchanges I went from 'Dude' to 'Cracker'. Every time I responded I asked only one queston; "Can you name one single accomplishment of Barack Obama while in office"? BroBob kept skating on the question but the exciting aspect of this was I kept getting him angrier and angrier. Then he got threatening and I decided it wasn't fun anymore so I stopped.
This blog piece begs a simple statement. Can someone, anyone, please give me one accomplishment of this president. Oh, and furthermore, I read today that the GM Bailout cost the American people $10 billion dollars. That's one more faux accomplishment down the drain.

How To Spell L-I-A-R

In a blockbuster report on Monday, sources told NBC News that at least half to three quarters of those who buy individual insurance will have that insurance cancelled by their insurers over the next year thanks to changes mandated by Obamacare. A huge number of the people forced off their current insurance will have “sticker shock,” the sources said. What’s more, President Obama knew all that even as he campaigned on the promise that if you liked your insurance, you could keep it: “the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.”

Government Workers Are Lazy. Is Anyone Surprised

According to new data released by the bureau of labor statistics, private sector workers are 50% less absent from work yearly than their government paid counter-parts.

President Obama Kept In The Dark

No surprise here. Jay Carney, White House buffoon, says that Pres. Obama was kept in the dark about the United States bugging German Chancellor, Angela Merkel's telephone for the last five years. "I didn't know", he said. King Obama also didn't know about the IRS targeting TEA Party groups, Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Benghazi, and National Security spying on US citizens. It's finally come to fruition. Obama doesn't know squat.

It's Time For Me To Find A New TV Cable Carrier

Via NY Times: Time Warner Cable, one of the country’s biggest cable operators, has agreed to carry Al Jazeera America, giving the Qatar-owned broadcaster exposure to millions more households as it seeks to build an audience in the United States. The contract, to be announced on Thursday, is vital for Al Jazeera because Time Warner Cable supplies television to millions of households in New York and Los Angeles, two essential markets. Al Jazeera America will be added to the channel lineups in those markets this year, and in Time Warner Cable’s other markets by March.

Joe Wilson Was Right: Obama Is A Liar

Joe Wilson(R- So. Car.) sat to the left of Barack Obama at a joint session of Congress speech. He was in the first row when, having had enough, he shouted out, "You lie", at Obama's pronouncement of health care benefits. There were gasps from the assembled and boos from the left side of the aisle. The MSM excoriated him. Joe Wilson was right; not only on ObamaCare but on a whole host of subjects from Fast and Furious to the IRS scandals. It's more than worthwhile to read this article from the American Thinker:

"On September 9, 2009, Joe Wilson, Congressman from South Carolina, shouted "You lie!" when President Obama was touting the benefits of his Affordable Care Act, now dubbed "Obamacare."  Many in America were shocked that anyone would call the President of the United States a liar in such a forum as a presidential address to a joint session of Congress.

 But, now, as we look back on 5 years of Barack Obama, we see that Obama and his Administration do lie.  And they lie a lot.

  • Both Eric Holder and Barack Obama stated that "Fast and Furious was a program begun in the Bush Administration". That was a lie. The Bush Administration had, in fact, shut down any efforts to track illegal shipments of guns to Mexico because it was a dangerous and untenable undertaking.
  • Hillary Clinton, Susan Wright and Barack Obama all stated that the attack in Benghazi was caused by Islamist spontaneous reaction to an anti-Islamist video produced in the United States. We know now - and they knew then - that the attack in Benghazi was a well planned effort by well armed Islamic extremists with connections to Al Qaeda.
  • The President assured us that "..... the IRS targeting of conservative groups like the Tea Party..." was an isolated instance of rogue IRS employees in the Cincinnati office. We now know that the senior levels of the Administration (e.g., the Treasury Department General Counsel, the Deputy Secretary of the Department of the Treasury, and the Office of the White House Counsel) were acutely aware of these plans to target these conservative groups and were worried about these
  • The President and the National Director of Intelligence reassured the American people time and time again that the phone calls and emails of Americans were not being monitored and recorded as part of our intelligence programs. We know that to be false and, further, we now know that our electronic spying is international in scope and technologically sophisticated.

These are but a few of the lies that Barack Obama and his "partners in deception" have pushed upon the American people.  Presidents and Administrations have historically concealed intelligence operations and national security concerns from the American public.  But Barack Obama knows no limits to the lying that he and his Administration concoct to deceive and misdirect Americas.

Recently, the disastrous rollout of Obamacare has provided fertile fields for more lying.

"If you like your current insurance plan, you can keep it. Period."
  • "If you like your current doctor, you can keep that doctor."
  • "Your premiums will go down an average of $2500 per year."
  • "The cost of this national healthcare program will be less than $1 trillion."
  • "Obamacare would not cover illegal aliens."
  • "Obamacare would not cover abortions."

"'Splain This, Lucy"

Egg on my face. I had been spreading info to friends for a couple of years that the person responsible for the wording of ObamaCare was Robert Miller, husband of Socialist representative, Jan Schakowsky, from Evanston, Illinois. I need to amend this according to the perpetrator. I was watching the Kelly File on Fox last evening and Ms. Kelly had as a guest Dr. Ezekial Emanuel, brother of Rahm Emanuel. He claimed credit for this mess and Kelly concurred.
Every day in every way there is exposed absolutely ridiculous amendments to this abortion. As an example, check this out:

"Most people will never need drug, alcohol, and mental health treatment, but ObamaCare makes them pay for it. Do the middle-aged and elderly need  maternity and newborn care, and contraception? And now we are paying for vision and dental -- both of which were affordable in the free market".

Stop the insanity, please. As Ricky Ricardo would say, "'Splain this, Lucy".

Here's another nugget you might not be familiar with. Read it and weep for the citizens of New Jersey.
The same company that recently won an award for building the Obamacare website, (in such an inept fashion that it is actually saving people from signing up) had also been asked to assist in distributing $1.7 billion in Sandy relief.

Harry Reid: "Everybody Wants To Pay More Taxes"

Senate majority leader Harry Reid says that "Everybody" is "willing to pay more" taxes. He said so in an interview with a Nevada Public Radio host.
“The only people who feel there shouldn’t be more coming in to the federal government from the rich people are the Republicans in the Congress,” Reid told the radio host, according to Roll Call. “Everybody else, including the rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more.”

Yeah, Harry, that's what I want to do more than anything in this mortal life; give more money to you nobs in Washington D.C. so I can feel like Mortimer Snerd.

A Witness Speaks Out On Benghazi Attack: To Be On Sixty Minutes

This report is done through the efforts of Lara Logan from CBS. You might remember when she was violently attacked and raped during the Egyptian revolution that Obama sanctioned for the Muslim Brotherhood to take power. Ms. Logan now works as a correspondent for Sixty Minutes and she will have an anonymous witness to the Benghazi attacks on next weeks Sunday show. This man will tell us how our men responded without weapons and were virtually powerless to defend themselves".

(CBS News) We're hearing for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year.

U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on the mission and a nearby annex. In an interview for "60 Minutes," correspondent Lara Logan spoke with a British citizen, who had been hired to train the Libyan guards at the U.S. mission. He calls himself Morgan Jones, a pseudonym to protect his safety.

Morgan Jones, a British citizen, had been hired to trained the Libyan guards at the U.S. mission.

Jones says he was annoyed that the State Department wouldn't allow his guards to carry guns. As the attack began on Sept. 11, one of the guards called Jones, who was living nearby.

Benghazi: A timeline of events
"I could hear gunshots, and I -- and he said, 'There's -- there's men coming into the mission,'" Jones said. "His voice, he was -- he was scared. You could tell he was really scared, and he was running. You could tell he was running."

His first thought was for his American friends, the State Department agents, pinned down inside the compound, and he couldn't believe it when one of them answered his phone.

"I said, 'What's going on?' He said, 'We're getting attacked.' And I said, 'How many?' And he said, 'They're all over the compound,'" Jones said. "And -- I was shocked. I didn't know what to say. And I said, 'Well, just keep fighting. I'm on my way.'"

Morgan's guards, unarmed and terrified, were surrounded by heavily armed gunmen, but they still sounded the alarm.

"They said, 'We're here to kill Americans, not Libyans,' so they'd give them a good beating, pistol whip them, beat them with their rifles and let them go," Jones said.

An independent investigation in Benghazi found the mission security was grossly inadequate and that requests for additional security were not approved at State Department headquarters.

Breaking New: One Billion Dollars

According to The the cost of the failed site, health will exceed one billion dollars, not the $645 million as we were told. Where is the outrage?

"You Light Up My Life"

If you watch television even rarely you're bound to see a commercial featuring Debbie Boone. She's the daughter of singer Pat Boone. The commercial touts something called Lifestyle Lift. It's magic according to Ms. Boone. Your wrinkles will disappear as will those more than ugly bags of almost gooey fat that droops from your chin and eyes.
A few months ago I researched Lifestyle Lift. Get this: for a mere $15,000 you, too, can recapture your real you from twenty or thirty years ago. This procedure is not your normal Nancy Pelosi facelift, either. In this one your eyes are not permanently opened. The recipient is made to look 'naturally' young.
Know what? My wife is 65 year old and she's darned good looking. If she ever thought about any kind of female enhancement I'd----well, I wouldn't do anything because this thought has never entered her mind or mine. She has normal wrinkles but they're sexy wrinkles. People are made to get old and they are made to look old. I received a very nice compliment a few months ago. I told a lady at Walgreen's my real age and she said, "Wow, I thought you were around 55". I liked that and I also saved $15,000 by not going to Lifestyle Lift.
With that kind of money I can buy a whole lot of golf balls.

Didn't We Have A Government Shutdown

Didn't we go through a government shutdown recently? I think the Dems are blaming the 'Pubs for causing a wasted $24 billion dollars because of it. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee have been vilified by members of their own parties(Wusses) and the communists on the Left. Here's the real dope as I understand it: Cruz and Lee wanted a one year delay in the implementation of ObamaCare for the general public. That would equal what Obama implemented for Big Business(Unconstitutionally, of course). Well, yesterday a gaggle Dem Senators up for election Communists were screaming for a one year delay of putting the American people into the abyss of Hell. Call me stupid but isn't this the same thing Cruz and Lee recommended? Isn't this the reason for the shutdown. Would  you like to know who's really incompetent? It's we, the American people, who tolerate this nonsense.
Which brings me to another subject. It's the newly published and now on the market book by Peter Schweizer. It's titled, "Extortion". I read sixty pages last evening. The basic premise is, members of Congress, without saying it or putting it in writing, let businesses know that if they want a law to go their way or against a competitor, they'd better fork over some big cash to that congressman.  It's called PAC money and that congressman can use it for his personal use. I'm proud to write that my congressman, Pat Tiberi(Wuss), made the list of extortionists along with one of the king's of extortion, John Boehner. More on this subject later. However, if you want near immediate information on the subject go to Barnes & Noble and buy the book. It's on sale for $20.

What A Freaking Surprise: 100% Of Dem Senators Up For Re-election Want O'Care Delayed


These liberals are so transparent.
100% of Senate Democrats who are up for reelection and who voted for Obamacare are supporting a delay in Obamacare.
senate democrats
They’re scared to death of this disaster they created.
Big Government reported:
On Wednesday, CNN’s Dana Bash tweeted that all Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2014 will reportedly support a delay of Obamacare’s enrollment deadline.
Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), who is up for re-election in 2014, wrote to Obama on Tuesday and asked him to delay the enrollment deadline for the individual mandate. “Given the existing problems with the website, I urge you to consider extending open enrollment beyond the current end date of March 31, 2014,” Shaheen wrote to the president. “Allowing extra time for consumers is critically important so they have the opportunity to become familiar with the website, survey their options and enroll.”
On Wednesday, Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), who is facing a tough challenge in his 2014 re-election against Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR), came out in support of Shaheen’s call for a delay of the individual mandate’s enrollment deadline. Pryor had previously been on record as supportive of the mandate as is.
Now, according to CNN’s Bash, the Democratic Party is coordinating an effort to support a delay in the individual mandate

What If This Is What Obama Wanted All Along

Sickness of the 24 hour news cycle is overwhelming me. And I'm talking about ObamaCare and it's supposed failure. Should Sebelius be fired? What did Obama know and when did he know it? Good Lord, it's Nixonian all over again. Ted Cruz caught hell because he called for a one year delay in the healthcare implementation. Forty minutes ago it was announced by the White House that there will be a six week delay. As far as I can tell this may be unconstitutional. It seems Obama and his minions can change things willy nilly whenever they desire without repurcussion. Joe Manchin(D-WV) was the first to call for a one year delay yesterday. There's now some unrest in the enemy camp.
I would like to pose a question. Is it possible that this failure to launch is exactly what Obama planned all along? It was announced yesterday that 300,000 citizens from Florida would lose their Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance. The private insurers are going bust. Now, take into consideration the low info voter. Most of them think health care is free, some don't know anything about it and others think the law has been repealed. Could it be that Obama is counting on these know-nothings to be the impetus for a single payer system; complete control of health care by the government? It's gotten to the point that Obama, John Conyers, Bernie Sanders and a host of others socialists are openly calling for single payer. If they don't receive negative feed back then it's full steam ahead to implement the takeover of our entire health system. All Obama has to do is wait out the 2014 elections for twelve more months and continue his perpetual campaigning. It's no big secret he desires to re-take the House and garner more Dem votes in the Senate. Then he'd have free sailing to what he's wanted all along and that's to institute his dictatorial policies. I've always maintained he's unqualified for the job as president but that doesn't mean he's stupid. Lenin wasn't stupid. Neither was Chairman Mao. Both were a little freaky and bloodthirsty but stupid, well, that's up for debate.
I'm throwing this premise out for discussion. I may be wrong and I may be right but I do know one thing. I wouldn't trust the people in DC to carry out the garbage.

That's A Whole Lot Of Procressed Cheese

We have just concluded the 5th fiscal year since President Obama took office. During those five years, the federal government has spent a total $3.7 trillion on approximately 80 different means-tested poverty and welfare programs. The common feature of means-tested assistance programs is that they are graduated based on a person’s income and, in contrast to programs like Social Security or Medicare, they are a free benefit and not paid into by the recipient," says the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee.

The First Day Of Snow

It's beauty lies like a cozy blanket upon the landscape. Sleepy eyes gazed from the upstairs bedroom on the first snowfall of the season as memories of bygone days filled the mind. I imagined the thrill of three and four year olds as they saw their first wintry season in memory. Such was the innocence of my youth. I harkened back to the early Fifties when the excitement overwhelmed me. It was then that I was able to dress for the occasion, jump in a pile of fluffy snow which seemed the size of Mt. Everest. My cheeks were a rosy red as I trudged down the sidewalk trying and failing to make the dusty snow into a ball. Still, it was such a grand time.
Quickly my mind came back to today. As I peered through the bedroom curtain imagining the five months ahead of me the only vision I could muster was, "This sucks. I'm going back to bed".

Ted Cruz Speaks To The People Who Elected Him

Ted Cruz met with the people who elected him and received an eight minute standing ovation. When was the last time that happened to Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid?

HOUSTON (CBS Houston/AP) — Republican Sen. Ted Cruz compared the glitches plaguing the website for President Barack Obama’s signature health care law to the methodologies of “Nigerian email scammers.”
The Tea Party favorite received a rousing ovation during a rally of more than 1,000 supporters Monday in Houston while speaking out about the Affordable Care Act, known also as Obamacare.
“You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately,” Cruz said, according to the Houston Chronicle. “They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website.”
Cruz told supporters that he’s working for them and not for D.C. “party bosses.”
“People are saying mean things about me,” Cruz said, according to the Chronicle. “Who cares? At the end of the day, I don’t work for the party bosses in Washington. I work for each and every one of you. What they don’t understand is that we’re standing here together. We’ve got a problem in Washington. They’re not listening to the American people.”

Ted Cruz; The Real Deal

The Far Left certainly made a shambles of Ted Cruz's attempt at ObamaCare delay, didn't they?. Even in his own Party the 'Pols' came out of the woodwork to chastise him. People like Peter King(Wuss) from New York and the ever affable John McCain(Wuss-Syrian rebel lover) Arizona labeled him a wacko bird, whatever that is. I think it's derogatory, though.
Can't you just imagine how utterly stupid Cruz is? Big business has received a one year delay in implementing ObamaCare but the mandate is to go into effect January 1, 2014 for the citizenry. Cruz is fighting for the citizenry. What a buffoon he must be.
I have family members who have, most likely, jumped on the anti-Cruz bandwagon just as they did against Sarah Palin because she, too, is so stupid. Yet, when asked for examples of her brainless antics they're clueless. Lest we forget, the day it was announced that Palin was the veep candidate a group of '400 Journolists', Far Left writers and bloggers, coordinated efforts to dispel her as a valid person, mother, wife, daughter, female, human being, candidate. It's the Saul Alinsky method. Find a target and destroy it. Back to Cruz. Why is it he was so vilified in his own party? This is easy. It is the 'good 'ol boys' club and why rock the boat? Twenty-six million citizens of Texas voted in the Senatorial election when Cruz ran and he won. He's in Washington to tear down the 'good 'ol boys' club.
As for the Democrats; they're fearful of him. They're treating Cruz the same way they treated Palin. If he was a doorknob candidate the MSM and the Rat Party wouldn't even mention his name. Watch out for Cruz. He's a winner.

Healthcare Freebies: You're Paying For Them

Enrollments in health care plans through Washington state’s new health care exchange continue to increase, but it turns out a majority of the enrollees so far won’t be paying for their plans. “The Medicaid newly eligible population accounts for a little more than half of the 25,000 that we’ve seen,” Michael Marchand, with the new Washington Health Care Exchange, tells KIRO Radio’s Dave Ross. A Medicaid expansion under Obamacare raised the income threshold for those eligible. “So that’s the new population that’s part of the expansion that the state undertook,” says Marchand. “It’s quite possible that those people may have never had health insurance in the past and have been able to go to Washington Health Plan Finder and determine that their eligibility actually qualifies them for free insurance.” In addition to the 25,000 enrolled, an additional 37,000 residents have completed online applications that are awaiting payment that is due in December. The state estimates about 1 million Washington state residents do not have health insurance, or about one in seven people. Marchand says they’ve found the bulk of those uninsured will likely get fully-subsidized health care or assistance of some kind. Meanwhile, young healthy Americans are still dodging the exchanges like the plague.

More Enroll For Mars Trip Than Health Exchanges

The hits just keep on coming with Obamacare enrollee tales of disaster, with the latest joke that more people have actually completed an online application to journey to Mars than successfully signed into the White House’s websites for health reform exchanges.
The Daily Mail reported that Twitter exploded on Thursday after it was revealed that 202,586 individuals had successfully signed up for the Mars One colony project to populate the red planet as soon as the technology becomes available.

Why Conservatives Will Eventually Outnumber Liberals

I Hit The Trifecta

The great American sellout took place last night. Why is it whenever a controversial bill is signed it always takes place under the cover of darkness? You've seen some of the particulars, of course. The American people are cheering because the dastardly Republicans caved and now will have to pony up another trillion dollars in debt. Mitch McConnell illustrated what a 'clean bill' is not by getting $3 billion for a dam and flood control project for Kentucky. Sometimes the smallest items bring out the worst. i.e. The now deceased ex-Senator, Frank Lautenberg, from New Jersey can rest for eternity knowing his wife will receive a one time pension of $176,000. Evidently, deceased spouses of money sucking congressional people get this stipend. I say it's only fair. Afterall, she's already worth $90 million.
I was semi-anxious to see how my senators and representative voted in Ohio. Unsurprisingly, Sen. Rob Portman(Wuss Party) had a Y next to his name along with that of my congressman, Pat Tiberi(Wuss Party). What this means is they voted alongside Senator Sherrod Brown, aka Marxist. I hit the big trifecta.
All Americans are oh so happy this morning. The debt problem is solved for three months when the Republicans cave again, Harry Reid is the king of the Senate, John Boehner can feel cuddly by telling us he 'fought the good fight' and Barack Obama can move on to his next piece of socialism, immigration reform.
What a county!

These Senators Voted To Let The UN Take Our Rights

We came four votes away from the U.S. Senate giving our Constitutional rights over to the United Nations.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power. They acted in opposition to their Oath of Office to uphold the Constitution.

US Soldier Gets 20 Years In Jail For Killing Two Taliban

First Lieutenant Clint Lorance exposes just another in the long list of reasons why Obama hates our military and the veterans. First Lieutenant Clint Lorance was sentenced to 20 years in jail for killing two Taliban terrorists in Obama’s war in Afghanistan. Sure you want to be a solider these days? Clint Lorance, from Texas was just doing the job he was instructed to do, and now he’ll be in jail until 2033. Think about it. What were the Taliban scum doing when Lorance killed them? The Taliban scum were setting up an ambush of his platoon. Welcome to Obama’s AmeriKa. As usual, not ONE corrupt media outlet has mentioned this outrageous story. Not even Fox News. a Defend Veteran Lorance Facebook page has been set up and already has over 10,000 likes. Shame on you Barack Hussein Obama for allowing this to happen in the first place. As far as the media goes, they are just as guilty as Obama for not reporting on this story at all. Do a Google search for this story. You will find NOTHING from the American media!+Exposing+Liberal+bias+cause+the+MSM+doesn%27t+have+to.%29

Six Degrees Of Separation

"Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare".

I have this neighbor who is the most interesting man I've ever met-----bar none. He knows everyone. A month ago we were sitting on the courtyard outside his condo telling stories. Mostly, I was listening to his stories when all of a sudden he said, "Last week I was having breakfast with George H. and George W. Bush"  I about fell over. I don't know why because he's forever telling me about his friends and acquaintances. I know I'll forget the names of many of his friends but I'll do my best to conjure them up: Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Nick Price, Gary Player, Sean Connery, Rick Pitino, John Boehner, Dick LeBeau of  the Pittsburgh Steelers: Oh, there are many more but I can't remember them all. My neighbor was an All-American football player at Ohio State and played on their 1958 Rose Bowl team. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns but opted out to attend dental school. While doing this the legendary Ohio State football coach, Woody Hayes, asked him to coach the Freshman football team and he did. Get this. Two years ago he had a cancerous tumor on his shoulder the size of a grapefruit. He began taking experimental drugs from the Univ. of Pittsburgh and the University of Akron. That same tumor is now the size of a pea. He should be dead but he's alive, thank goodness, because he give me such great joy. The story gets better. His treatment was the injection of ovaries from hamsters. Who on God's green earth could come up with something like that? His comment was, "I feel great except I have an extreme fear of cats".
So, because Doc knows so many people then I know them, too, if one believes in the theory of Six Degrees of Separation.
I asked Doc how it was that he knew so many people. Was it because of his All-American status or maybe the contacts he made through dentistry"? "No", he said. "When I joined Muirfield Village Golf Club I was put in charge of amenities. Whatever and whenever any PGA player or guest of the club wanted something it was up to me to secure their request and make them have an enjoyable experience. Believe me when I tell you that I personally knew more high class hookers than anyone in Columbus, Ohio". And that's the truth. Hookers? They don't fall into my classification of Six Degrees. Not if I value 45 years of married bliss.

One Reason Megyn Kelly Tops Rachel Maddows Ratings

kelly maddow

MSNBC is screaming fraud in the ratings race claiming they are skewered toward Megyn Kelly's new time slot on Fox. Fox's new format has her switching with Hannity and going head to head with Maddow. In the 24-59 graphic their first night's joust showed Maddow with a lead. After that evening Kelly kicked booty. Who, I ask you, who would you watch?  C'mon Rachel, even lesbians put on lip gloss and a smidge of make-up.

Dr. Benjamin Carson: Obamacare Worst Thing Since Slavery

Dr. Ben Carson, a rising star in conservative circles, on Friday compared President Obama´s health-care law to slavery. "You know Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery," Carson, who is African American, said Friday in remarks at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. "And it is in a way, it is slavery in a way, because it is making all of us subservient to the government, and it was never about health care. It was about control." Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon.

Where Does The Money Go

Since I retired in 2008 there are times I've turned into a spendthrift and other times I've become Daddy Warbucks. I hate to admit it but I sometimes spend money like a Democrat except it's my money so there's the difference. For example, I bought a fishing boat in August. I had sold my old boat to my youngest son which pretty much means I gave it to him. This new boat I like a lot. It had everything I wanted. It was previously owned but that's okay. The motor was a 50 horsepower as opposed to my old 20 so I could now freely zip around the lake in pursuit of Charley Tuna. I'm one of those guys, and it doesn't make a difference if it's buying a boat or getting a motel room, who doesn't dicker on price. I tell the seller that I want their lowest, rock bottom price. If I don't get it I move on. The irritating aspect of the boat purchase is that I spent the exact same amount on it as I did on my hearing aids. Does that make sense? I suppose if one can't hear it does.
On the way back from Minnesota I stayed the night with my son and his family. I always buy dinner for them and went to Lee's Chicken per their request. The total bill was $30. There was a lesson to be learned. It doesn't matter if you buy a balloon from a five and dime or a car from a Lexus dealer. Always ask if there's a senior discount. I never thought of this even though I've been considered a senior for twelve years. My tab at Lee's came to thirty dollars so I paid up, no questions asked. A lady behind me in line asked for a senior discount and got it. It was 10% off. I asked for my discount but since my total had been rung up it was no dice. So, now I'm thinking, how many dollars in the last twelve years have I lost because I failed to ask for a senior discount. Would it have been enough to buy a boat? How about hearing aids? From now on every penny I spend will come with the question: Is there a senior discount on this? I think vendors are counting on seniors to be forgetful and not ask. Now, where was I? Oh yeah, I remember. Let's start a 'Just ask' movement just like Michelle O has a 'Just move' one.
One thing I am good about is getting the bang for my buck on gasoline purchases. It's important to check out to get the best price. Usually, the cheapest are in the slummier parts of town and by the time I've driven there it's a wash on how much I've saved. Gas prices across the Midwest have been cut back lately. I found one that was $3.11 per gallon. I'm the person who fills the tank to the max in this situation. Rich guys fill the tank then when the nozzle hits the automatic shut off they put the hose back and drive off. They could care less the price of gas. Not me. I remember when fuel was 19 cents per gallon.
The moral of this entire piece is, as Ben Franklin said, "A penny saved is a penny earned" unless you happen to play a very expensive golf course. Then the skies the limit.

Great News: No Bull

Last week Nancy Pelosi told us the government had cut every possible thing they could from the budget. Evidently she forgot this little nugget.

( -The Utah National Guard has cancelled its order for $47,174 in mechanical bulls. had reported the order on Monday in a story that was linked to the Drudge Report and cited on Fox News. A cancellation notice for the contract was posted on the General Services Administration (GSA) website at 9:32 AM Thursday. Press Information Officer Lt. Col. Hank McIntire of the Utah National Guard tells there never really was a contract, “There were glitches in the contracting process. So, no contract was ever drawn up or consummated.”

Two Stories To Illustrate How Obama Hates This Country

Now that the Obama's have a second term and free reign to destroy any semblance of a nation under the Constitution there is no doubt that these people will go to any lengths to attain their goals for a complete socialistic society. An article from the Canada Free Press explains what we should have known all along.

"Two separate but inextricably linked stories emerged this week that should boil the blood of every American with a pulse. The first was an announcement from the Pentagon that the families of servicemen and women killed in Afghanistan would receive nothing from their government — not even funeral and burial benefits — during the “shutdown.” By mid-week, Obama was personally harrumphing about this, saying he was “disturbed” to learn what was going on in his own administration; and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced that Fisher House, a charity organization that works with veterans and military families, had agreed to cover the families’ costs from its own funds.
The Defense Department typically pays the families of our fallen heroes about $100,000 within three days of a soldier’s death, but DOD officials claim the “shutdown” was preventing those benefits from being paid — even though Congress has already appropriated the funds for them. Instead, the world has to witness the pathetic executive branch of our federal government, led by the weakest, most petulant radical ever to occupy the White House, turn to a private charity to compensate the families of these courageous men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for an apparently ungrateful nation.
The other story — and one could not make this stuff up if one tried — was the celebration of lawlessness that occurred on the National Mall, as thousands of criminal aliens and their supporters in Congress rallied for “immigration reform.”
So let’s review: the park service, which manages our federal lands and monuments, is forced to barricade, ticket, fine, arrest and terrorize law abiding American taxpayers — including some of the greatest military heroes this country has ever produced — while opening up our National Mall for a protest of our nation’s immigration laws by known criminals (in and out of Congress)".

God Knows I Love Golf But This Is Ridiculous

The Pentagon is continuing to operate hundreds of golf courses around the world during the federal government shutdown, a spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Defense confirmed to TheBlaze on Wednesday.
The confirmation comes on the heels of news that the Pentagon has stopped paying out death benefits — normally $100,000 — to the families of fallen soldiers, saying the shutdown means there is no authority to pay the money.
Instead, it was announced on Wednesday that outside organization Fisher House Foundation will cover the costs. The Pentagon will then later reimburse the organization when the shutdown ends.

More Grounds For Impeachment: Waiting For The MSM To Respond

Top Internal Revenue Service Obamacare official Sarah Hall Ingram discussed confidential taxpayer information with senior Obama White House officials, according to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and provided to The Daily Caller.
Lois Lerner, then head of the IRS Tax Exempt Organizations division, also received an email alongside White House officials that contained confidential information.

Educators Are Ridiculous And Effiminate

I'm about to write a very sexist statement. Female school administrators/teachers are ridiculous in their thinking. And it's all come about because of the 'War on Boys' that we've seen in the past few decades. I can't tell you the number of times I've read stories about schools dropping sports programs because kids get hurt, even at recess. We need to settle rambunctious boys down in the classroom so let's fill them full of Ritalin, so-called experts say. Three weeks ago a high school out east dropped high school football in the middle of the season because of the hurt factor. It so happens this high school had a program longer than any high school in the United States. It also should be noted that White House spokesman, Jay Carney, graduated from this school so that, in part, explains their wussy attitude.

PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., Oct. 8 (UPI) -- A New York state middle school has banned footballs, baseballs and other recreational objects from the playground due to a recent string of injuries.
Port Washington schools Superintendent Kathleen Maloney said the policy banning objects including footballs, baseballs and lacrosse balls at Weber Middle School in Port Washington came after several playground injuries, WCBS-TV, New York, reported Tuesday.

It's Flat Out Despicable

Shutdown leaves kin of dead
soldiers without money for funerals
New York Daily News, by Joseph Straw And Stephen Rex Brown    Original Article
Posted By: drive- 10/9/2013 8:05:54 AM     Post Reply
Families of fallen military service members usually receive a "death gratuity" of $100,000 for interment and expenses within days, but not during government shutdown. They paid the ultimate price serving their country — but their government can’t spare a cent to cover their funerals. The stooges on Capitol Hill added insult to tragedy Tuesday when it was revealed that the families of four soldiers and a Marine who were killed in Afghanistan have not received a $100,000 “death gratuity” because of the

Let Me Try And Understand This

There's going to be a rally for immigration reform on the National Mall. They must be expecting a huge crowd because over 100 prota-potties have been brought in to service the needs of the people.
I saw Nancy Pelosi was down there to greet the protesters yesterday. There were signs galore but since I'm illiterate(to the Spanish language) I was unable to read them.
This brings us to a crossroads. If these folks can meet on the Mall why is it our WWII Veterans' are subjected to arrest even though their property is on private land?
Could it be that Comrade Obama has a plan to divide the country? Nah!

Miriam Carey: A Story Bigger Than Trayvon

Why was Miriam Carey gunned down in Washington D.C.? She didn't have a gun. Her baby was in the car. The lady didn't have a bomb strapped to her chest. And some of you are asking, "MJ, who the heck is Miriam Carey?" Good Question. One thing she isn't is Trayvon Martin.

From the American Thinker: 
An unarmed 34-year-old woman suffering from postpartum depression is surrounded by the authorities while sitting in her car, and gunned down in cold blood. She is blocked in. She cannot move. And yet she is killed by heavily armed security officers. Her one-year old child witnesses this from the back seat. Why is this not a national tragedy?

"Barack, What About The Chicago Blackhawks"?

Via Politico:
A representative for the Washington Redskins said Monday that President Barack Obama has “better things to worry about” than the team’s name and questioned why he hasn’t commented about a certain Chicago hockey team.
“President Obama has better things to worry about, but he should look at the Chicago Blackhawks who won the Stanley Cup and he’s never said a word about them,” Lanny Davis, an attorney for the Redskins, said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”
Davis cited recent polling showing that most people were not offended by the Redskins name and hit Obama for speaking about football “at a time like this.”

Homeland Security Advisor Admits He Has Ties To Radical Islamists

This is insane. As soon as I finish this post I'm calling my Representative, Pat Tiberi(W-Wuus Party) to find out why.

He has access to confidential security information. Lovely.
A prominent Muslim advisor at the Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has close ties to a convicted Hamas fundraiser and other radical Islamist causes, including a nonprofit that proclaims sharia is the only legitimate law according to Islam.
Incredibly, this Homeland Security advisor, Mohamed Elibiary, has regular access to classified information and is a prime mover behind two of the Obama administration’s most dangerous policies; normalizing relations with domestic and foreign Islamist groups (including the Muslim Brotherhood) and arduous enforcement restrictions of laws related to material support for terrorism.

A List Of 'Unnecessary Shut Downs By Obama To Inflict Pain

From Breitbart Big Government:
While our president still enjoys his essential employees and locations: the White House chefs, Camp David, and a military golf course, there doesn't seem to be any question that in mercenary pursuit of a political win, this White House is determined to unreasonably punish as many everyday people as possible.
The list is telling. The administration is doing everything in it's power to make the people become angry toward Republicans. In essence, what they are doing makes themselves look like jerks. Scan the list. What an ass.

I thought everyone would like to know that the Camp David golf course will remain open. What a relief.

Obama's Gestapo Threatens Religious Freedom

From Catholic Vote:

"Our government is out of control.
First, it was the World War II veterans who had to break down barriers to see the open air, un-attended memorial erected in their honor.  A memorial which is on public land but is supported – including the National Park Service fee – with private funds. This week there was more security surrounding this memorial — just to keep elderly veterans out — than there was at our embassy in Benghazi the night it was attacked.
And for what? To inflict as much pain as possible through this government shutdown. It’s called Washington Monument Syndrome, and it’s pure political theater.
But now there’s a story just coming to light that takes things even further. According the Archdiocese for Military Services, GS and contract priests (who are paid by the federal government as independent contractors in places where there aren’t enough active-duty priests to meet the needs of Catholics in military service) are being forbidden from celebrating Mass, even on a volunteer basis.
If they violate this restriction, they face possible arrest. FOR CELEBRATING MASS".

An Obama Voter Disgusted With 'You Know Who's' Health Plan

I'm giddy, absolutely, boyishly giddy. Here's one comment of Obamacare that was on Facebook.

A single mother of two said she is in school and working full-time while living "75% below the poverty level." She said she was shocked to learn she did not qualify for a healthcare subsidy. "Are you F'ing kidding me????" she wrote on the government's Obamacare Facebook page. "Where the HELL am I supposed to get $3,000 more a year to pay for this 'bronze' health insurance plan!?!??? And I DO NOT EVEN WANT INSURANCE to begin with!! This is frightening," she wrote.

This is only one of thousands who are suffering sticker shock. Don't blame anyone but these folks. They voted for him.

Is The Government Too Big

I've discovered a wonderful, hilariously funny and informative new blog in the last two months. It's called Mr. Walsh is in his late twenties and a conservative radio talk show host, 630 WLAP, out of Lexington, Ky. He's on from 3-6 PM and you can pick him up live or delayed. He's danged good, Y'all.
I garnered some info off of one of his blog posts. It has the entire list of government agencies as if you give a crap. You might want to peruse the list. It's a swamp of blood sucking varmints.

"You don’t think the government is too big? Here’s a partial list of federal departments and agencies, courtesy of USA.GOV. This list doesn’t tell anywhere close to the full story. It doesn’t include all of the various redundant divisions, offices, foundations, services and institutes. And it doesn’t include all of the overlapping state and local agencies.

Minneapolis: It's An Okay Town

The wife and I left the lake yesterday and drove almost two hours toward Minneapolis before we checked into a motel. On the way it's become a requirement to stop at mile marker 178 on I-94, the Clearwater exit. If you're ever near here, say, anywhere in a ten state area you must stop in to Nelson's Bakery. It is by far the best bun house ever constructed. By all means buy their apple fritters. Have you ever heard the phrase, "to die for". Well, they are to die for. We then took in the movie, 'The Family' with DiNiro, Michelle Phillips and two young kids who were perfectly cast. It's about a Mafia family under the witness protection program who are placed somewhere in France. I didn't want to go because I thought it might be one of those killing movies. It was that but it was very funny and well written. It was a comedy with killing.
Today, we visited Minneapolis. It's a wonderful city---from May(late May) until November. It was in the mid-sixties and the natives were dressed appropriately, bikinis for the women and skimpy clothes for the men. Our first stop took us to the very beautiful St, Mary's Basilica. Oddly enough, it's the oldest basilica in the United States. Whoda thunk it? We like visiting churches. The architecture is magnificent and, regardless of where one goes, the holy water is all the same.
After this we were told to visit the Walker Museum of Art. This was my big concession to Lizzie; not exactly for me but I've forced her to attend athletic events over the years so we're even. Thank God there wasn't much to the viewing. Lizzie only wanted to go because it's supposedly a famous place. It's all modern art. There was one piece of work done by a man name Claes Oldenburg from the 60's. It showed the bottom of a toilet compared with a map of Detroit. Even back then that city was in the crapper. I was glad we stayed only an hour. I noticed I was developing a lisp and bent wrist.
The highlight of the day was having lunch at Matt's Bar. It's located at 3500 Cedar St. S in Minneapolis. It's famous for it's burgers which are called Jucy Lucy. Both Man vs. Food and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives have televised from the place. The burgers, two of them fried with a piece of cheese between them. Be careful when you take that first bite. The hot, oozy cheese shoots directly toward your pie hole and it's delicious.
In the afternoon, after our cup of coffee at and outdoor café we checked into our motel and did the thing we do best. We took a nap. The perfect end to a perfect day.
